Student Scholar 2016

Mai ZaruMai Zaru is a 20-year-old bilingual Palestinian junior majoring in Special Education for Mild to Moderate disabilities and minoring in TESOL K-12. Despite having Arabic as her native tongue, Mai has written two poetry books in English; one of which is in its last stages of publication. Yet education doesn’t end there for Mai; she aspires to receive a Master’s degree in leadership that will broaden her opportunities of service. She seeks an education beyond degrees, an education that will allow her to initiate an end to the era of silent oppression and muffled freedoms. That education will not only become her passport and ticket home, but her flight to serving the world with all its challenges.
